    How could I resist? *pics*

    Well, long story short, I went to a bird expo yesterday and got another budgie.
    I couldn't find anything to buy beucase we got there late and everything good was already gone and the cages were out of my budget. While I was walking around, I came across this one breeder. She had baby budgies, handfed and parent fed ones. We stopped and talked to her for like 15 minutes about her birds and rescues. I was drawn to one of her handfed budgies. She was on the floor of the cage, chasing the other one around. Suddenly, she stopped and rolled over!!! Then he went to his foodish, ate some seed, and started to grap onto the cage and do summercualts (sp?). That is what sold me. That and her coloring. She is a dominant pied, I think. She is white and this beautiful greyish bluish color with what I think is the slightest hint of violet! The breeder told me her mom was a violet and her dad, if I remember right, looked just like her. She is also really soft.

    Although she was handfed, she isn't the tamest budgie. The breeder wasn't able to spend as much time with the babies as she had wished. She is still sweet though.

    She was born on January 30, 2006.
    I guess you'd like pictures now, huh? Here yah go!
    Most of the pictures make her coloring look blue, but its not. The second picture shows it the best, but isn't exact.


    One of my favorite pictures...(this resembles her coloring the best)

    The spot on her head...

    Cute pose...

    With a flash...



    What do you think; male, female, or too early to tell?
    (With a flash...)

    (Without a flash...)


    If she is a girl, I was thinking of the name Lucy. If she is a boy, I'm not shure. And if I can't figure out which she is, I think I'll try out Lucy and see how that fits.

    She is scared to death right now though and barely moving. She finally just ate this afternoon (some millet). I was getting frustrated beucase she wouldn't eat. She stood on the millet all afternoon, but no, she wouldn't dare to touch it!
    I don't blame her though, she went from her family that she knew from day one, to this place with tons of screaming birds and people, to my house with a new cage and family.

    Thanks!

    I should have brought my camera, it was SO cute! Yep, she would roll over. She would grab the side of the cage, roll onto her back, and stay there for a second, like she was playing dead. I read that it is a "baby budgie" thing, but it would be awesome if she carried it into adulthood.

    I hope once she settles in, she will do it again, because its hilarious.

    I don't know if you'd call it summercaults, but its where he puts his head between his legs and goes all the way around.

    She looks to be a girl to me, and what a beauty!! I'm really impressed with her markings--they are so regular, and not splotchy at all!

    She's a cutie. Looks like a female to me. That color is called mauve, meaning that she has 2 dark factors -- sky blue has no dark factors, cobalt has one dark factor and mauve has two. To get two she would have had to get one dark factor from each parent.
